Comment: Live audience recording by Phil Harland from the Mezzanine level, second row seat B 113, with H2 set to 90 degrees. The first 2 minutes of track 1 are of a lower quality than the rest of the show. I missed the first 10 seconds of that track and had the H2 facing the wrong way until the 2:00 mark (I had set it for 120 degrees but it had reset to 90 for some reason). Track 14 (Hold On) is partial because David Gray's guitar was out of tune and he abandoned the song without returning to it. I have done some slight adjustments in Audacity by equalizing to bring out some top end and by adding fades at the beginning and end of each tune (less crowd noise).

Hey, I like the fades at the ends of the tracks, not the best in sound quality but I've heard far worse, like a James Taylor gig in Japan in 1972 or 3 and he sounds like he's in a public bathroom or a drainpipe. It sounds like this was a pretty intimate venu and the acoustics were pretty good. Nice equalizing on it, not too much high end enhancement, but enough to hear the instruments pretty well. As to the first track, well, oops. Stuff happens. And as was said previously, at least you don't have people screaming right next to your recorder, god that just ruins a recording. Check out the version of "song to the siren" from the Denver Convention Center gig 2006-03-13. I was at that one and never heard this person shout, but there he is during a quiet intro to the song. Ah well, what can you do. Pretty good job considering what you had to work with. Thanks for recording this, cute show.

not the crispest recording, but what I like about it is that you don't have people screaming during the songs, so it's an enjoyable listen
